Fed up with his job, his wife, and his life, Bill (Aaron Eckhart) finds himself the reluctant mentor of an unruly, but curiously wise, teenager (Logan Lerman). Bill's life hits an all time low when he catches his wife (Elizabeth Banks) having an affair with a local news anchor (Timothy Olyphant). With nothing left to lose, he turns to the kid for inspiration and regains his lost sense of self.

Schrödinger's CatReviewed in the United Kingdom on 01 July 2019
2.0 out of 5 stars
Mid-life crisis type comedy which is not funny and therefore crashes and burns

This movie is about a man stuck in a job he hates, working for his father-in-law and brother-in-law, who are utterly detestable. Wife has affair with some plonker and the wheels come off his tedious suburban life. He has to mentor a teenager, who has his act together much better than him. Therein lieth the plot. With hilarious results. Or not. There are a few laughs here and there but the humour is fantastically weak and overall, the movie doesn't really come together. In my opinion, this is due to poor writing more than anything else because the cast are good, well-established actors. I sincerely hope they got paid well in advance as the movie was a total box office bust, and I can see why. Shame really as it had the makings of something but the lack of witty banter and genuine laughs totally kills it, cooks it, eats it and buries the picked-clean carcass. Two stars only as a nod to these fine actors.

Jessica and Elizabeth are pretty enough. Aaron is awesome as always

Ok so this film has actually been made and released under a completely different name (Bill or something) and was first released in 2007. Cut to 2015 and here we have a slight mess. The film is watchable but considering the cast it should have been a whole lot more. Jessica and Elizabeth are pretty enough. Aaron is awesome as always. Lovely Logan is funny. Good but not great. There are NO subtitles. Hoh or sdh.

Rather likeable comedy drama with Eckhart and Logan as a great twosome. Alba is rather wet and dull but I couldn't get enough of the father and son relationship of the elders. Eckhart mentors Logan but as the film progresses you clearly see its all the other way around

Great for the mentally lazy.

Improbable but enjoyable if you have an hour and a half to waste and you don't expect complexity, suspense and all that.Reasonably well acted.
